All the photos posted above were taken today in my garden, this October 9th, 2021. It was a warmer than typical October day. As you can see, flowers are blooming still, and are even more lush-looking than they were in summer, thanks to cooler autumn weather in my zone 5 garden. Perennials that flower well into autumn, like sedums, asters, ornamental grasses, and cold-hardy annuals, stretch the gardening season and are food for the soul. I hope you too, took some time to enjoy the flowers in your own garden or in your surrounding neighbourhood. We have so much to be thankful for. Wishing all gardeners a Happy Thanksgiving Day!
